Antje’s on her way to her dream job
Read about Antje who is now Executive Administrator after attending our Successful Mums Back to Work Course.
Mum to twin girls, Antje had previously worked in the banking industry and had been at home for six years when she contacted Successful Mums. With the girls starting school, she was ready to go back to work but didn’t want to return to the world of banking.
“My biggest challenges were not having an up-to-date CV and being unsure how employers would see me after a career break of six years. I wanted help with interview techniques, preparation and knowing where to look for a job that would offer the flexible working hours I needed to still be on hand for my children.
I signed up for the Successful Mums Back to Work Course and it soon helped me update my CV and identify some clear objectives. It was excellent! Jane Knight introduced the course and made us all feel immediately welcome. The course itself was very well organised and Georgina, our trainer, was approachable, extremely knowledgeable and empathetic.

Georgina helped us identify the skills we’d developed as mums and transfer them to the workplace. The peer support within the group was beneficial as we were all in the same boat. I’ve recommended the training to my friends; it’s perfect for women wanting to return to work.
I used my updated CV and newly acquired knowledge of where to look for flexible work to secure a role as Executive Administrator within a headhunting company in the chemical industry. I’m responsible for all their event management and run their Executive Club.
I now work 13 hours a week from home for a flexible employer, which fits in perfectly with my family’s needs. I’m very happy with the flexibility and the people I work with are lovely. There’s scope for travel and, with the event side growing further, I may well be on my way to having my dream job…
Big thank you to Successful Mums!”
